BB Plaza Museum of Art

Updated: Dec 30, 2023

The BB Plaza Museum of Art opened in 2009 on the second floor of the BB Plaza commercial facility. With the concept of "art in daily life," the museum aims to be an open art museum where many people can become familiar with each of its works.

The museum's collection includes approximately 1,900 works by leading Japanese painters such as HIGASHIYAMA Kaii and TAKAYAMA Tatsuo, as well as works by masters such as Chagall, Renoir, and Rodin.

The museum is relatively uncrowded, allowing visitors to view the works in a relaxed and leisurely manner. The BB Plaza also has a restaurant where visitors can take a break and have a meal before or after viewing art.
